Find your voice, tell your story, and write with power!

Need help with SAT prep, admission essays, term papers, book reports, or other writing projects? I'm passionate about helping writers of all levels gain the skills and confidence to turn their ideas into compelling prose.

I'm a writing tutor with years of experience as an editor, journalist, author, and teacher. I'm an Ivy League graduate with a degree in English (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa), a regular contributor to major magazines and newspapers like the Wall Street Journal, Wired, and Smithsonian, and a published author. I've worked as an editor and proofreader for magazines and publishing houses, and have taught writing to high school, college, and graduate students.

I believe in the power of a good story, and will work with you to hone your ideas into provocative, compelling, clear, and organized essays. We'll work on grammar and spelling — the details count! — and on overall argument structure. I'm an expert in the SAT/ACT five-paragraph format, and in personal statements, application essays, research projects, and book reports. No writing assignment is too big or too small! I have experience working with foreign students and students still learning English.

We'll shape our lessons to your skills and needs with practice test questions, essay prep, critical thinking, outlining, self-editing, and proofreading. I'll help you mold your words into high-scoring writing with clear instruction and lots of encouragement.

Self-confidence is the key to great writing! You'll leave our tutoring sessions empowered, encouraged, and eager to write.
